Too controversial? It's a story about life, the life around us every day. We can not shelter society from the hard truths, besides, I can guarantee that the majority of those kids have seen the movie plenty of times on their own. High Schools do musicals and dramas that are packed with love interests, violence, death, drugs... the list goes on...issues such as gay rights and AIDS are becoming even more common in every day life than Jud falling on his own knife and Curly getting blamed for it in Oklahoma, or Eliza Doolittle's struggle with love vs. emotional abuse in My Fair Lady...We cannot continue to deny the world around us, all we can do is accept it in our own light, and by learning of these issues through a story such as Rent, this becomes easier to grasp. I am truly dissapointed with this cancelation, as they say "Viva la vie boheme!"
